Find out about the Tribal Premium Sponsorship Program (TPSP)


What is the Tribal Premium Sponsorship Program?

Tribes can refer Indian Health Services (IHS) patients to a health specialist faster through The Northern Cheyenne Tribe’s Tribal Premium Sponsorship Program program at no cost to the patient. Your IHS benefits will not be affected, you will always be a beneficiary of IHS. TPSP is an added benefit that can make services available to you.

It’s free! You will have faster access to health specialists; access to medical care when traveling. TPSP participants need to secure a referral from IHS when seeking services elsewhere.
